20 Hour Online TCTSY Foundational Training - Beginning to Build a Trauma Informed Lens
Time & Location
About the event
About This Training: This training offers 15 hours of in person Zoom training sessions and 5 hours of self-study for anyone with an interest in understanding the impacts of trauma on the whole system while learning to integrate a trauma informed lens into their scope of practice.
Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) is a program of the Center for Trauma and Embodiment at the Justice Resource Institute (JRI). It is an empirically validated, evidence-based, adjunctive treatment for complex trauma and complex posttraumatic stress disorder.
This training is a body centered approach to healing trauma. It is built from the framework of intersectionality and provides tools and an understanding of trauma theory, attachment theory, neuroscience, and yoga to understand the impacts of trauma on our body, life, and relationships. Throughout the training, participants will add an understanding of how to facilitate trauma-informed movement and breath practices. This is a foundational training that aims to take a broad stroke approach to understanding trauma. The hope is that this trauma informed lens provides participants with the groundwork needed to not recreate trauma or trauma dynamics within themselves, relationships, and community. Participants are invited to explore the various ways in which this embodied movement practice, rooted in a trauma informed framework, can be a starting point towards recovery in their own bodies first and then integrated into individual and communal spheres of influence.
Scope of Practice After this Training: This is an introductory training to understand the framework and modality that is Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY). This training will give participants the tools to integrate a trauma informed framework into the work that they are doing. Those who take this training will be able to offer movement guided by a trauma informed lens. For those who are interested in offering Trauma Sensitive Yoga classes, additional training is needed in order to meet survivors of trauma with full competence on their healing journey. The Center for Trauma and Embodiment does offer a 300 hour certification (for which this training is a prerequisite) for those who wish to become a facilitator of this Trauma Sensitive Yoga modality.
